    Good luck to everyone with delivery's and the challenge. I am definitely out, as when the hull was stripped back to bare for inspection, some areas of serious concern were discovered. All being well Paean will be repaired and afloat in time for my summer holiday, but Baltimore will have to wait for another year. What can I say about my "nearly Jester challenger". While I failed on the delivery trip, Paean will emerge from the repair yard stronger and better equipped for future challenges. I have learned a LOT, I am undeterred and I am even more determined then ever to take part in future.

    Fair winds everyone, I shall watch all your progress jealously!

    An update.

    Now in Weymouth, very nice harbour it is too. Off to Dartmouth tomorrow, where Kerrin will now have to stay for a few days due to other commitments.

    I will now not be able to start the Challenge on Sunday. I currently plan to sail to Plymouth on the following Monday, to start the challenge on the Tuesday, weather permitting. Should still get me into Baltimore for the Pirate weekend.

    Hi Gitane,

    I am in Salcombe and will move in to Plymouth 12th.

    Shame you will miss the start but hope to meet up in Baltimore.

    Good luck.

    Thanks! Staring out the window at rain + wind and wondering about my (our) sanity!

    But (as they say) "that ship sailed" long ago.

    Yes, filthy weather in Dartmouth too
    Forecast for Irish Sea is rough or very rough, Yikes?

    Next week looking better though.

    I’m working my way down the Menai Straits to Pwhelli.

    Moved down to Victoria Dock in Caenarfon today, hope to head over the bar tomorrow evening after completing the victualling and then probably rest up on South Anglesey before heading through Bardsey Sound early Thursday morning... looking to meet-up with Pwhelli sailors in the afternoon.

    I need to go up the mast on Friday if anybody fancies holding the safety line ?

    Weather not looking great for next week, with Winguru forecasting gale force gusts for Baltimore next Thursday.

    It could all change I know, but things continue to look pretty unsettled.

    Anyone going to hang around Plymouth for more settled weather?

    I am thinking of maybe heading for the Scilly isles and then hanging around there for a clear three day forecast for the crossing to Ireland. I don’t have a drogue, nor is the boat setup for knock downs, so I need to be a bit cautious.
